Strum these: A $500K diamond-studded Fender Strat and an axe filled with water

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Current chart sensations Lizzo and Billie Ellish don't stand on stage with guitars around their neck like Eric Clapton, Slash from Guns N' Roses or Bruce Springsteen did (and still do.) So what are guitar makers to do to keep their factories humming? Turn to streaming, classic rock and YouTube to reach tomorrow's guitar player. The NAMM show, a collection of music store operators, music professionals and tens of thousands of fans is concluding this weekend here, where guitars of every color and imaginable shape were on display. The goal for many guitar makers: to either get older folks to spring out more money to add even more guitars to the collection, or better yet, get tomorrow's generation excited to start playing with new shapes.

Rachel Bovard: Congress has a role to play in regulating Google

FOX News

A new Google artificial intelligence model appears capable of more accurately spotting breast cancer in mammograms than radiologists; Fox News contributor Dr. Manny Alvarez reacts. The Silicon Valley libertarians at Google are spending a lot of money these days to keep the government out of the company's business. But their sudden aversion to government regulation is a newfound religion for Google: the company has been profiting for years off of a sweetheart deal with the government struck in 1996 -- a government subsidy which Google no longer deserves. Blockbuster reporting from the Wall Street Journal reveals that Google is no longer the neutral search platform they have long led consumers to believe they were. "It is not possible for an individual employee or a group of employees to manipulate our search results," Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress.

Affinity Matrix


An Affinity Matrix, also called a Similarity Matrix, is an essential statistical technique used to organize the mutual similarities between a set of data points. Similarity is similar to distance, however, it does not satisfy the properties of a metric, two points that are the same will have a similarity score of 1, whereas computing the metric will result in zero. Typical examples of similarity measures are the cosine similarity and the Jaccard similarity. These similarity measures can be interpreted as the probability that that two points are related.

Paul Armstrong, CEO of Here Forth, also explains how artificial intelligence is changing real estate.

Google Search Console unparsable structured data report data issue - Search Engine Land


Google has informed us that you may see a spike in errors in the unparsable structured data report within Google Search Console. This is a bug in the reporting system and you do not need to worry. The issue happened between January 13, 2020 and January 16, 2020. Google wrote on the data anomalies page "Some users may see a spike in unparsable structured data errors. This was due to an internal misconfiguration that will be fixed soon, and can be ignored."

Facial recognition: EU considers ban


The European Commission has revealed it is considering a ban on the use of facial recognition in public areas for up to five years. Regulators want time to work out how to prevent the technology being abused. The technology allows faces captured on CCTV to be checked in real time against watch lists, often compiled by police. Exceptions to the ban could be made for security projects as well as research and development. The Commission set out its plans in an 18-page document, suggesting that new rules will be introduced to bolster existing regulation surrounding privacy and data rights.

Operations 2.0 is coming – are retailers ready?


Successful retailers are already modernising their work environments, extracting more value from their data, deepening their understanding of customers, innovating faster and migrating their operations to the cloud – all to become more competitive. While some retailers are focused on improving their existing operations processes, this is not enough. Real value creation and cost reduction comes when retailers reimagine the operations process entirely and take a digital-first strategy, rather than making incremental changes to existing models. This is where artificial intelligence (AI) has a crucial role to play. Cognizant's research indicates that the revenue impact of new technologies, including AI, is $634bn (£483bn) globally.

ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre University of Essex


We are collecting more data than ever. Organisations gather huge amounts of data, but they don't always know its value. We help them uncover the power and insight hidden in their data, optimising the potential for machine learning, artificial intelligence, and analytics. The time and expertise of our distinguished researchers is available in the form of consultancy, training and events each of which is funded through the work of the Centre. Projects that require greater support can gain access to funding through a Data Analytics Innovation Voucher (DAIV).

AI can diagnose breast cancer more accurately than a doctor can


Artificial intelligence can diagnose breast cancer more accurately than trained doctors, a study suggests. The research on almost 30,000 women who underwent screening found a computer programme could reduce the number of cases missed by more than two thirds. Researchers said the algorithmdeveloped by Imperial College London, Northwestern University in Chicago and Google Health was a "huge advance" in early detection of cancers. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK, affecting around one in eight women - with 55,000 diagnoses annually and 11,000 deaths. Experts said the breakthrough could save thousands of lives, by finding deadly tumours that would otherwise go undetected.
